Cowboys Draft '09 -- Lets Play the Scenario Game by Rafael Vela on Apr 23, 2009 11:41 PM CDT Let's run down some possible drafting combos, going on a couple of hunches: First, Dallas will get a safety with one of its first two picks. If there's a need position, this is it. Second, I don't anticipate many moves up or down, at least not in the 2nd round. Scenario One -- The Surprise Option 51- Max Unger, C, Oregon 69 - Darcel McBath, FS, Texas Tech 101 -- Jasper Brinkley, ILB, South Carolina 117 -- Brandon Williams, OLB, Texas Tech Unger goes in most mocks about 8-10 spots ahead of the Cowboys' first pick. But sometimes good players fall. Jerry Jones mentioned today that Flozell Adams and Andre Gurode were both players slotted into first round mocks, who fell into the early 2nd their respective years. Unger would provide cover for all five line spots. He's a center who can also play guard or tackle. If he drops, Dallas wouldn't hesitate to pick him. Scenario Two -- Safety First 51 -- Louis Delmas, FS, Western Michigan 69 -- Lawrence Sidbury, OLB, RIchmond 101 -- Jason Williams, LB, Western Illinois 117 -- Sebastian Vollmer, OT, Houston If the higher safety on the Cowboys board is there, they take what they need and keep stocking the defense. Williams is another LB option besides Brinkley. He looks like Kevin Burnett with bulk, a 241 pounder who runs the 40 in 4.5. He could start in the nickel and work towards playing all three downs. Scenario Three -- The Move Option 51- Brian Robiske, WR, Ohio State 69 -- Darcel McBath, FS, Texas Tech 90 -- (trade up) Stephen McGee, QB, Texas A&M 117 -- Brandon Williams, OLB, Texas Tech A very Texan flavor to this mock. I'm building this one on the assumption that Delmas and Unger are gone. In that case, Dallas resists forcing a pick and goes with a wideout. McBath fills the safety need in the early third and Dallas makes a move of approximately 10-12 spots to nab McGee, who will likely go somewhere in the 3rd round, from what I'm hearing. Williams brings a pass rushing prospect in the 4th. There are many other permutations, but I think the Cowboys will follow a script similar to these. They'll take some combination of FS, ILB, OLB, WR, QB and OL, and just go with the best option at each pick. Review the list of attendees to Dallas "Texas Day" and the team's prospect day and draw up a few more scenarios of your own.
